Magpie tells the story of Margaret, a 65-year-old ‘hoarder’, entombed in her home by mountains of her own possessions. After 35 years of accumulating, this is the only place Maggie feels safe, here she is Queen. And yet, Maggie has lost sight of why it all matters. Through a combination of physical theatre/ movement + ethereal storytelling, Maggie lets us into her Queendom to try to find the truth.
However, there is an external threat that is set to turn Maggie’s world upside down. The council and social workers are invading. The walls of her precious fortress are tumbling down, can she save it?
